Pros: Built in speakers not very good...
Cons: Picture out weighs the lack of sound.
Summary: For the average consumer, you need to have some knowledge of how HDTV work. When buying HD anything you must upgrade other components in your entertainment system.
When buying a HDTV
1 - Upgrade your cable box to HD and set it to the highest your cable company offers as well as your HDTV. Everything has settings.
2 - Upgrade your DVD player to Blue Ray. The reason for this is your DVD player only plays standard definition, the Blue Ray up-converts your existing DVD movies so they can be seen in a higher resolution, not 1080p but higher than 480.
3 - Maybe get a soundbar. Sometimes when you buy a HDTV less known brands they most certainly come with crappy speakers with no full sound, or you can just use your suround sound system to watch TV and DVD movies.
With that being said, most consumer give bad reviews to HDTV's after buying. Most sales person won't tell you that you have to configure your newly bought electronics, they just assume or don't care to tell you these little things and manuals don't help either. My cable company didn't tell me I had to higher the HD resolution to 1080i on my HD box and gave me no manual on top of that. Some HD cable boxes come standard 480p, so check your settings on all your entertainment system so you can have the highest resolution possible.
Now back to the actual review. I saw this TV next to a Samsung LED TV. I watched both TV for about 20 mins (a live concert)I could not see the difference in picture quality. This HDTV has an awsome picture, enough inputs, enough settings to make this TV worth buying. The sound is the only thing I am not happy with, it has no full range sound to just watch TV it only sounds like they lowered the bass all the way down, so I use my suround sound system. So for the money this is a great buy at PC Richards for $296 instead of another higher end LED TV if you ask me. It wasn't worth returning and paying an extra $300+.
